lantronix iphone printerxPrint Server Office Edition

As a home-based business owner or freelancer there's a good chance your iPhone and iPad have become indispensable for the work you do. But while they offer opportunities that can grow your business, it can be a drag when you need to print an email or document since most printers are not iOS compatible.
Cue the Lantronix xPrintServer Office Edition.
The size of a pack of playing cards, you simply plug it into your Wi-Fi router using an Ethernet cable and it'll recognise almost any printer on the network. If your printer is a little older and not network-ready you can instead plug it directly into the xPrintServer's USB port.
Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch will automatically find your printer and, with just one click, will print whatever you throw at it.  Since the xPrintServer Office Edition can support an unlimited number of iOS devices, you can even take it to client meetings or to shared office facilities and use it with printers there.  
This beats having to print via a network-enabled PC or laptop and gives you more time to attend to the things that matter most to your business.
